Koalas and kangaroos

I flew in to Adelaide and took a bus to Kangaroo island. It's about 2 or 3 hours journey and the scenery is nice. The project is based on kangaroo island where there are a lot of - you've guessed it - kangaroos! There are lots of nature reserves and other animals like sea lions, birds and of course koalas. The sanctuary deals mainly with koalas although there are other animals. My main duties were feeding and cleaning the animals but there was also a lot of presentations on how the sanctuary's work benefits the koala populations which helps put it all in context. It's a cute project in a cool location and i recommend it.
